I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.
I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...
I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.
what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place
This ones just a small problem. My webcam works fine, but it's missing on the menu and i can't locate it anywhere in my files so it's just a bit annoying if i want to make a video. It's not even in the manual (printed or computer version). It took three weeks before it appeared in the menu after I bought the laptop, but since I had to restore to factory default and god knows where it is, as i say it's only a minor problem, no location in services. and when i expand my Acer menus theres nothing there either.
my notebook will not off after restarting. it stays at "WINDOWS IS SHUTTING DOWN" and God knows how long it will be like that if i dun press the off button. i found out that either the BISON or SUYIN webcam software is causing the problem....
I have an Acer Aspire 5735 with an inbuilt Crystal Eye Webcam, I have managed to set up and talk to a contact, but my contact can see me, but I cannot see them. What do I need to do to rectify this? Or is it my contacts problem.
I basically used my webcam every night with Skype to talk to my friends. The very next day, it stops working. Ive literally tried everything. In the device manager, I have an "Unknown Device" listed as a USB. Im 100% sure this use to be my Camera.
I just used the Acer factory CDs to reinstall my OS + Drivers. All the drivers were successfully installed with the exception of the Camera Drivers (because the computer doesnt see a camera)
I tried to download the drivers from the Acer website but (both Chicony and Suyin) and everytime I try to install them a error comes up that says "Camera not found!" I have a laptop so I have no clue how its not finding it.
ive been working on this for hours now and its really getting frustrating. Here are the things ive tried, and if someone knows a solution or a different method I havent tried to fix it, PLEASE let me know
1. Reformatted computer using Acer recovery discs 2. Downloaded and tried to install drivers from acer website (camera not found problem) 3. Put windows in Safe mode, uninstalled unknown device, restarted computer to let it automatically scan/update (still failed) 4. Deleted all pictures from My Pictures 5. Tried using Windows Vista drivers and setting to Vista Compatibility mode (I have windows 7), no avail 6. Uninstalled and reinstalled Unknown Device (aka camera) driver, didnt work 7. Tried the windows update software option, windows said everything was fine (pshhh). 8. Uninstalled unknown device, used the option "scan for hardware changes" still didnt work 9. Installed skype to see if the webcam would be recognized, which it wasnt.
I'm trying to get the webcam working. I haven't used it in probably over a year, and now I can't seem to get it to work. I've read lots of posts about downloading a new driver but I've tried several different ones and none work. I have an Aspire 5517. When I go into the device manager it says the webcam is working....but it isn't.
I'm using an Acer TravelMate 7520. I had it with me at university, and had no problems (other than it being a little slow sometimes...). When I came home for the summer it started freezing up, and then emitting a loud, constant beep. it will work fine for a few minutes upon start, but then the programs start to freeze, then the mouse, then the beep comes. I did a virus scan and came up with 2 viruses, which i removed, but it is still doing it!! I can't figure out what is wrong with it, or a solution.
The other day it got very hot, because me (like an idiot) left it sitting on my bed with the fan covered. It cooled off and everything, and the fan works fine.
I have an Acer Travelmate 5520 with the Crystal Eye web cam. I havent used it (but it was working originally)and when I did want to use it I received the message "camera not found". In Device Manager there is no heading for Imaging Devices. I have downloaded updated drivers but the problem seems to be recognising the hardware.
I recently bought an Acer Aspire 5720-4516 and started having some problems with it. I just fixed the Wireless connection problem thanks to a fellow member's suggestion ( the card was out of place), so now I'm going to address the camera problem.
Calling the Acer company, they gave me a bunch of useless information, albeit very politely, and led me in a wild goose chase. Not only that, but the drivers they had in their US page were slightly all over the place. But I digress, the camera was working fine for a few weeks after I bought the laptop, then just as easily, it wasn't opening up as it should. I downloaded drivers like crazy, and still nothing happens. The Acer Crystal Eye program opens and the 'booth' like setup is fine just as it was originally, but the space where the image is doesn't show up. After a few more tries of trying to access the program, it would just not load and it would tell me to search for the latest drivers once more. I would download the latest ones and still nothing.
I wonder if other people have had the same complications as me. Anyone have any suggestions? How can I check if the device is actually active in my computer, because I've tried looking for a way to tell and nothing comes up.
My Acer Aspire 6935 has a buit-in webcam (064e a_117 in device manager) which is perfectly running according to the device manager (no yellow mark), but still can't be found by the Acer Crystal eye software in Vista. Same problem in msn or vlc.
I've installed a multiboot with xp and same problem in xp.
I've tried using the latest driver, but it's a generic windows driver, so it's the latest one.
I've tried using a specific driver, I've found one in the Asus website. It's a driver for the 64e a_117 according to the *.inf file, and now the webcam is recognized as USB 2.0 UVC HD webcam. But still not found in msn or vlc. And still fully working according to the device manager.
yesterday, i've opened the lcd cover to unplug and replug the device physically. But nothing special, it keeps saying that it's not found.
So my question is : What can i try now to fix this webcam ?
I forgot to say that the webcam was really working two weeks ago, and windows restore didn't help.
I recieved the Aspire one notebook for a christmas gift not to long ago and it is an awesome little gadget. But what just happened a few moments ago is the camera decided it wasn't going to work anymore and I got a message saying. "Camera not detected." I tried doing restarts resets and even did a eRecovery only to be told that it was a usb device and that I need to "plug it in". I don't understand why it decided to randomly stop working and I'm rather annoyed by it and would like some assistance on this issue. I had to send back one notebook already because the power source was busted I really don't want to have to send this one back too.
I've had this problem for a couple of weeks now. Didn't notice this until I installed Windows 7, but now my webcam does not work. I think it has to do with my laptop falling off the couch as I had problems after that getting the card reader to work (card reader is fine now). I have tried running the Crystal Eye program in XP, Vista 32-bit, Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit with no luck (it just says camera not found). Occasionally in Vista I will get a popup error message saying a usb device has malfunctioned, and when I look in device manager it says unknown device.
Recently done a clean install of W7 so lost most of my acer applications (god is it hard to find them) and was having trouble finding the Crystal eye programme. Does anyone have any knowledge of where i could find a version that works with my model (6930g, W7 home prem 32) and will record video, the version i installed when i got w7 only let me take pictures?
I've recently bought the 7520, and at the moment everything is working hunky dory. In fact, it is quite a good machine.
I've made myself both a full bootable recovery disk, and a disk with all the drivers and applications. The only bugbear for me is the customizability that I want to do. I have never owned a laptop before, preferring my desktop pc which I have upgraded to a wonderful, powerful beast.
I bought the laptop so I could be elsewhere in my home and be connected to the net via TP-Link. Even this works great and at full speed. So, currently no problem.
Obviously the OS is Vista 32 bit, which I want to downgrade to XP. On the Acer website there are no XP drivers for the inner components of the 7520, and I am assuming that all the Acer bumpf like 'enet' and 'empowerment', etc, are part and parcel of the drivers...or are they simply Acer software which you can delete without any degredation to the operability of the system?
The truth is, I want my laptop to be a mirror microcosm of my desktop pc. Is it possible for me to downgrade to XP, but beforehand, to find and backup the proper XP drivers for the inner components of my laptop before I attempt to do so?
I just got my 7520 and have wiped Vista off it and installed Ubuntu and Xp, my nix is fine I am havin trouble finding drivers for XP and most of the vista drivers dont work in XP, I have managed to find Wifi and sound worked pretty much straight away but cant seem to find anything else that will work for me..... anyone got any ideas to help with this, I have tried driver download apps(like driver detective) and they dont seem to want to find the nvidia graphics driver.
Specs follow:- Processor: AMD Athlon 64 TK-57 - 1.9GHz, up to 800MHz FSB, 512KB L2 Cache RAM: 1GB DDR2 (2 x 512MB) Hard Drive: 80GB Serial ATA 5400rpm Screen: 17" Widescreen TFT (1440x900) with CrystalBrite Technology Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 7000M
I have the Acer Aspire 7520 Laptop with the AMD Turion X2 TK-55 1.8Ghz Socket One.
Using PC Wizard it says I have a Acer Fuquene motherboard and nVidia nForce 560 Chipset. My question is, will this accept any of the AMD Socket One Processors? I was looking at maybe getting a TL-68 2.4Ghz..
I originally bought this computer for my wife so I wasnt too picky on the specs, but now Im finding it more useful than my high powered desktop since I can take it anywhere around the house I want. Only problem is that the laptop just needs a little more grunt for some of the encoding and stuff I do occasionally..
I think it has something to do with my CPU getting really fast 100%
I bought a Acer Aspire 7520 for using it on college. It came with Vista Home Premium and I was planning to put XP asap on it. But because everything went pretty smoothly I did not saw a reason to do it inmediatly. So I could play games like Half-life 2, Counter-strike source, and Team Fortress 2 perfectly fine. But after some time I got annoyed like hell by Vista, and by downloading a crack I accidently installed a virus so everything got even worse. So I thought, okay lets install XP inmediatly! After I formatted my hard-drive I installed it with Service pack 2, and it all went great.
Well that's what I thought at the first few seconds. Because after having installed all the drivers I started Team Fortress 2. And suddenly around every 10-20 seconds my ping went from a 30 to 90 or higher. And that ofcourse caused my fps to drop, so this made it impossible to play Team Fortress 2. And after trying allot different drivers I decided to go back to Vista, because the games I wanted to play ran great on it. So now I have Vista Home Premium installed with Service Pack 1 and the drivers from acer that are made to be used with Vista + SP1. But now I got the same ****ing problem, I had in XP. For some unknown reason my ping decides to raise randomly. And makes it again not possible to play a game online because my fps then drops from a nice 72 fps to 9 or lower.
I installed every driver that Acer released for my laptop that are compatible with Vista (32bit) + Service pack 1.
I just have no idea what causes this! I have a antivirus + firewall. And a special anti-spyware/malware/other crap that makes your laptop/pc slow...............
My Aspire 7520 laptop is running good , and all goes well.. But when I want to play a game (lets say WoW) , the game has a strange , stuttering lag... Like when you have to many applications on. Its almost if my computer can't handle it.
My Laptop has these specifications , and i wonder if it has anything to do with this.
Windows Vista Home Premium AMD 64 Athlon x 2 (Dual-core processor) NVIDIA GeForce 7000M videocard 120GB hard drive disk space 2024MB RAM DDR
I just bought it brand new, I've had it for about 2 weeks now. And I was wondering how i could make the games go faster... Ive looked about everywhere and no solutions so far.
What i have tried: -Letting the game run on only 1 core-FAILED -Trying to set up XP on my computer-FAILED miserably to the point where i was afraid i screwed up my computer fully. Lucky someone helped me, as i couldn't run the backup for some reason... he let me autoboot vista without autobooting XP... next time ill need more info before i F up my computer
(Also , would it help in game performance when i downgrade to XP?)
I want to install a 64 bit OS (widnows XP pro sp2 x64) on my laptop because I just ordered 4 gigs of ram and want to speed up my system. Thing is I dont know if I can run it , I have the AMD Turion 64 x2 TL-58 (1.9 GHz , 2 x 512 kb L2 cache) but I read I have to have a 64 bit motherboard also.
I bought my laptop last year around christmas time. Surprisingly the nvidia 7000m performed very well. I was able to run Gothic 3 on low specs, and also fallout 3 which ran well on medium specs. But about 3-5 months ago the performance deteriorated a lot. it got so bad that i cant even watch movies on it anymore. All the framerates, on games it ran fairly well before, are unplayable now. I just hope i didnt fry the gpu because it did overheat before, but i just thought it was normal. Ofcourse if i new about this forum before none of that might have happened. There many useful posts here...
crashed 7520. Vista bsod's on startup and continuously reboots. In the 'Startup Repair' utility, The 'System Recovery Options' box lists no windows Vista installations to repair, even after loading the proper storage drivers... When I browse for Drivers, I can access D:, E: (CD), and X: (??), but not C:. When I try to access C:, I am told I have to format it before I can use it... Looks like C: (and Vista) is toast. Luckily, There are no 'Lost Pictures, etc, issues on this one, just looking for a return to functionality.
What do I need to do to get this machine bootable?
Is there any way to recover from here?
From what I have read so far, It seems I'll need a WinVista disk, but what Version?? (I can read the Product Key, but not the version info on the MS sticker).
I've also seen lots of "driver recovery" CDs and downloads out there, but Do I need them? Will they help me recover the existing Vista install?, or are they just drivers that I can dl from Acer?
i just got a new laptop and if i go to a web page or a document with alot of close letters something like this 11111111111111 or lllllllll i get alot of red or green color bleeding in between the letters or numbers. is this normal for a laptop screen or is it a defect that i should be contacting acer on? by the way its a 17 inch screen.
also it is useually when it is all black letters or numbers with a white background
Update: Just wrapped the notebook inside a blanket and overheated it, then let it cool down. Now it works. All i have to do now is to remove the Nvidia gpu stuff left behind and it should be ready for use again.
Edit: My problem is exacly the same as the one described in this thread: Aspire 7520 - will not start or then will not shut off But i could not find any fix.
My stepdads Acer Aspire 7520G wont turn on anymore. The wierd thing is that it was working yesterday. Now it just keep rebooting like seen in this YouTube clip. [url]
Its out of warranty so i was hoping i could try fixing it myself. With the help of the community here of course.
I been randomly searching Google for help and what i have found out is that this is a common problem, but i have yet to find any fixes other than the suggestion to remove the motherboard and reheat it inside an oven..................
This is my internet system: I got a VPN type of connection, i got LAN first, then a direct VPN. The provider hooked me up with those LAN settings (IP, mask, gateaway), so i HAVE to set em the local network settings before i connect, otherwise, my MAC adress gets blocked. After I have bought the laptop, I felt like makin' some Wi-Fi around; so I got MSI RG54GS2 now.
I don't know how to make all this work now, lol. I called my ISP company boss and asked him to disable the router's MAC adress' blocking, so I can free tuning my new router now.
Just gimme some advice which type of connection I should pick, where I should put my previous LAN settings n stuff like that.
